Understanding Iron Serum in Mumbai

What is Iron Serum in Mumbai?

An Iron Serum measures the amount of iron present in your body. This test is usually done if someone is suspected of iron deficiency or overload. It may also be done as a part of routine health checkups and as a follow-up if a person has abnormal iron levels and is undergoing treatment for the same.

What does Iron Serum measure?

An Iron Serum test determines iron levels in the blood and can help diagnose conditions like anemia, or iron overload in the body. People usually suffer from low iron levels in the blood if they prefer a diet that has low iron content, or if their body has trouble absorbing the iron from the foods or supplements they intake. Low iron levels can also occur due to intense blood loss or even during pregnancy. Similarly, an excess amount of iron in the blood can occur due to over-intake of iron supplements, blood transfusions, or if you are suffering from a condition called hemochromatosis (a rare genetic disorder that causes too much iron to build up in the body or cause problems in the body to remove excess iron). 

Therefore, doctors often suggest an Iron Serum to help check the status of your iron level, get valuable information about your nutritional well-being, detect potential health issues (if any), and take timely preventive measures.
